Title: Bisecting and Dsecting families for hypergraphs
Abstract: Let n be any positive integer, [n]:={1,2,...,n}, and suppose
$D\subset\{n,n+1,..,1,0,1,...,n}$. Let F be a family of
subsets of [n]. A family F' of subsets of [n] is said to be
Dsecting for F if for every A in the family F, there exists a subset A'
in F' such that $A\cap A'A\cap ([n]\setminus A') = i$, for some $i\in
D$. A Dsecting family F' of F, where D = {1,0,1}, is a bisecting family
ensuring the existence of a subset $A'\in F'$ such that $A\cap
A'\in{\lfloor A/2\rfloor, \lceil A/2\rceil\}$ for each $A\in F$. We
consider the problem of determining minimal Dsecting families F' for
certain families F and some related questions.
This is based on joint work with Rogers Mathew, Tapas Mishra, and
Sudebkumar Prashant Pal.

Title: Ramanujan's Master theorem for radial sections of line bundles over the real hyperbolic space
Abstract: Ramanujan's master theorem states that under suitable
conditions, the Mellin transfrom of an alternating power series provides
an interpolation formula for the coefficients of this power series.
Ramanujan applied this theorem to compute several definite integrals and
power series and this explains why it is referred as "Master Theorem". In
this talk we shall try to explain its analogue for radial sections of line bundles over the real hyperbolic space.
This a joint work (in progress) with Prof. Swagato K Ray.

Title: RiemannRoch, Alexander Duality and Free Resolutions.
Abstract: The RiemannRoch theorem is fundamental to algebraic geometry. In 2006, Baker and Norine discovered an analogue of the RiemannRoch theorem for graphs. This theorem is not a mere analogue but has concrete relations with its algebrogeometric counterpart. Since its conception this topic has been explored in different directions, two significant directions are i. Connections to topics in discrete geometry and commutative algebra ii. As a tool to studying linear series on algebraic curves. We will provide a glimpse of these developments. Topics in commutative algebra such as Alexander duality and minimal free resolutions will make an appearance. This talk is based on my dissertation and joint work with i. Bernd Sturmfels, ii. FrankOlaf Schreyer and John Wilmes and iii. an ongoing work with Alex Fink.
